I have been moved to call for submissions for a collection of hair stories I decided to put together after reading a very long series of posts about natural hair care. I have always been fascinated by reactions to and about our hair-Black Hair. It doesn't matter if it is bone straight or curly and tight, very few women of color appear happy with their hair, their crown and glory. I have received comments, both positive and negative, about my hair from those I would least expect to care.

Societies often have ambiguous and even conflicting attitudes towards state institutions that fulfil normalising, reformatory, punitive or disciplinary functions. This unease is frequently represented in an ambivalence or a hostility not only towards those disciplined or incarcerated but also, and perhaps paradoxically, towards the agents of those institutions, e.g. state incarcerators, the police, interrogators, soldiers, counterterrorist agents, or staff in mental hospitals. These figures tend to be conceptualised and represented in simplistic and often reductively negative terms. This demonisation reflects an unease towards institutions that are understood to be at once socially and politically necessary and saturated with threatening potential.
When names like V.S. Naipaul, Kiran Desai, Bharati_Mukherjee, Rohinton Mistry, Jhumpa Lahiri or Salman Rushdie are mentioned, one immediately associates them with authors of literary value, to protruding cultural and/or postcolonial stance and to India. In recent years literary criticism has paid much attention to authors of Indian origin: issues like identity, diaspora, nationalism, transnationalism and other key concepts have been the focus of much critical attention. However, none of these writers live in India, and some of them were not even born there.

Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit polished papers dealing with civil strife in its myriad thematic forms. Selected articles will be published in 2013 in a special volume as part of a conference series published by Cambridge Scholars Publishers. This call is for articles within English and the humanities as well as the social sciences and other connected fields of inquiry that allow 'civil strife' to be examined from a wide array of perspectives. The following list proposes a series of topics and themes that allow for theoretical, practical, and pedagogical inquiries and is certainly not exhaustive. Based on submissions received, this monograph publication will focus on selected areas.
